Young Adults at General Assembly
Young Adults at General Assembly (YA@GA) represent a range of experiences and identities. We are college students; we are young professionals. We are lifelong Unitarian Universalists (UUs); we are newcomers to the faith. We are single; we are partnered; we have children. We are thoroughly involved in this religious movement; we may want to be; we may not know how to be. All of us are committed to Unitarian Universalism and to its growth and vitality in the world.
In previous years young adults formed a caucus at GA, but in 2014 we shifted toward “Young Adults at General Assembly” or YA@GA. To learn more about this transition and the opportunities for young adults to participate at GA, see our Frequently Asked Questions.

Our YA@GA team is almost complete, but we still need a Community Engagement Coordinator (pdf). The last day to send in applications is Sunday November 15th. Read the description and application process (pdf)!

Several forms of financial aid and scholarships are available to young adults needing assistance in attending General Assembly. Volunteers have their registration paid in exchange for a number of volunteer hours at GA. General GA scholarships are available and young adult specific scholarships are also available; applicants are considered for both scholarship programs through their one application form. Both scholarship and volunteer applications are accepted March 1 through March 31.
Information about housing at GA, including hotels, home hospitality, and an email list to assist with finding roommates can be found at the General Assembly Housing page.
